infiltrated

most of our entertainment industry.

The devil was created by God

as an angel named

Lucifer.

God created Lucifer as a perfect being.

God gave Lucifer free will.

Lucifer obeyed God for a time.

At some point,

Lucifer rebelled against God.


The Devil


The devil was created by God as an angel named Lucifer.

At some point, Lucifer rebelled against God and led many of the angels to rebel against God. 

Since then, Lucifer has commanded the fallen angels.

Still to this day, he commands the fallen angels to do his will on the earth.


Lucifer, the devil, is also called Satan.

Satan transformed himself to appear as a snake in the Garden of Eden. There he tempted Eve to sin.


The devil lied to Eve to tempt her to disobey God.

The devil lies to us to tempt us to disobey God.

The devil tells us many lies including, "It is no big deal to sin."


Satan lies to us and tells us that when we sin,

we will have very few - if any - consequences.


sin-separate

Note that:

The devil can only be in one place

at a time.


Satan does not personally come against us as individuals -  because he can only be in one place at one time.


Since Satan

is limited to one location,

he commands the other fallen angels

to come against us

by hindering us, deceiving us, and tempting us

in a variety of ways.


These fallen angels are called satanic forces or demonic forces.

In addition,

Ephesians 6:12 gives more names for these evil beings:


For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,

but against principalities,

against powers,

against the rulers of the darkness of this world,

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:12 KJV

Bible-ephesians

Satan opposes God,

deceives mankind,

and will one day be in a place of eternal punishment.

fire-hell

Satan wants to take as many people as possible with him to eternal punishment.

Satan lies to us by saying that if you are basically a good person you can go to heaven.

But the truth is that only by following Jesus -  as your Savior and Lord -  can you enter your place of blessing in heaven.


Matthew 16:24-25 says,

“Then Jesus said to His disciples,

'If anyone wishes to come after Me,

he must deny himself

and

take up his cross and follow ME.' ”

Before we continue

we encourage you to

consider our page: Explaining Salvation

Note that on this website,

I frequently refer to Satan and his forces as "the enemy."

Satan is the ruler of the enemy forces that come against us. Satan can only be at one place at one time. He sends demons to steal from us, distract us, and destroy us.

The demons want to keep us distant from God.

They want to keep us from God's will and from receiving our covenant blessings.

They want to confuse our mind, upset our emotions, and influence our will.

They want to contaminate and ruin our relationships.

They want to keep us from wisdom and encourage us to procrastinate making good choices.

They want to keep us trapped in selfishness by continually drawing  our attention to ourselves instead of to God and to others.

Hollywood


Satan has infiltrated

most of our entertainment industry.


Take note that Satan is - not -  interested in entertaining.


Satan is interested

in

indoctrinating

people

to believe

and

to live out

his view of right and wrong.


When watching entertainment,

it is important to keep in mind

that the television show,

movie,

music video,

etc.

has probably been designed

to secretly

move you closer

to Satan's way of thinking.


2 Corinthians 11:14

tells us that

Satan can appear as an angel of light.


New TV show

called Lucifer.


In a new Fox channel television show,

Lucifer (the devil) is appearing as an angel of light.


What would Jesus do?

Jesus would tell you not to watch the show.


Here is an ad for the show that I got from the internet.

Lucifer, bored from his sulking life in hell comes to live in Los Angeles only to help humanity with its miseries through his experience and telepathic abilities to bring people's deepest desires and thoughts out of them.

While meeting with a girl in his nightclub (called Lux), a shootout involving him and the girl leads him to become a LAPD consultant who tries to punish people for their crimes through law and justice.


Beware......

Satan often presents himself as misunderstood

  - or  -

as the good guy and God is the bad guy.

-

AND Satan loves it when people think

he is just a myth and that he doesn't exist.

-


Satan wants to quietly:

Lower our inhibitions

and

Distort our perceptions.


Philippians 4:8

tells us how to decide how to pick our entertainment.

-

It tells us to

only watch things that are

true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable.

If we do that,

we will purify and transform

our entertainment choices.


How many things do you see on television and

movies and music videos

  that sounds like

Philippians 4:8 ???????


Consider visiting our Christian entertainment page. 

green-bible

Philippians 4:8 says:

"Finally, brothers and sisters,

whatever is true,

whatever is noble,

whatever is right,

whatever is pure,

whatever is lovely,

whatever is admirable—

if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—

think about such things.

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me,

or seen in me—

put it into practice.

And the God of peace will be with you."


Do you have the peace of God?


The peace of God is linked to obeying God.
